Praise for Windows on the World Complete Wine Course

“A visually exciting, intelligently structured reference.”—Bon Appétit

“The top introductory book available.”—Booklist

“Are you intimidated by wine stewards? Read Kevin Zraly’s new edition of Windows on the World Complete Wine Course and order with aplomb”—Playboy

“The liveliest short course on wine ever wrapped between two covers”—Boston Globe

“Brims with enthusiasm...breezy, down-to-earth....Reads like an interesting conversation.”—Chicago Tribune

“As entertaining as it is informative. A masterful job of simplifying a complex subject and making it fun in the process.”—New York Daily News

Kevin Zraly’s incomparable course (“One of the best start-from-scratch wine books ever written.”—Frank Prial, The New York Times) is still America’s top-selling guide to wine. In this year’s revised edition, Zraly takes a close look at America’s wines and their history, discussing varieties from all 50 states; his tips and guidelines for purchasing them will prove wonderfully invaluable. One thing hasn’t changed: Zraly’s inimitable, irreverent style. He answers every question about wine, offers the most up-to-date recommendations, provides advice on buying wine in stores and on the Internet, takes you on a country-by-country, region-by-region ratings tour of the latest vintages, and starts you on your way to becoming a wine connoisseur. Abundant full-color labels and maps complete the enticing picture. More current, more informative, more concise and precise than ever, this remains the wine guide against which all others are judged.

Kevin Zraly is the founder and teacher of the Windows on the World Wine School that has graduated more than 14,000 students. He is the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the European Wine Council and the James Beard Award, among others. Kevin Zraly has been featured in The New York Times, People magazine, The Wall Street Journal, GQ magazine, Newsweek, and USA Today.
